By concentrating sunlight onto a small area of high-efficiency solar cell material, concentrator systems dramatically reduce the amount of expensive and often supply-constrained solar material used in photovoltaic energy systems.? This talk will introduce photovoltaic concentrators and their role in the greater world of renewable energy.? A mostly technical approach, it will cover their operation, a little history and the breakthroughs that made them economically viable.? Their characteristics and advantages will be covered, and it will wrap up with a summary of SolFocusâ?? experience in the field.
